Book Blurb: Lacy Marie Crocker’s whimsical pet couture has gained a following in New Orleans’s cozy Garden District, and word of mouth has traveled all the way to her favorite fashion designer, Annie Lane. Lacy’s thrilled when Annie schedules a private session at her home to discuss a companion line for her evening wear, but when Lacy arrives for the appointment, she enters the kitchen to two mewling Siamese cats--and one very dead Annie.

Lacy takes the kittens home to care for them until they can be properly claimed by Annie's family or friends, but after a busy day of work, she returns home to find them missing. And when Lacy learns the cats are set to inherit Annie's fortune, she begins to wonder if the killer was after the kittens all along. Now Lacy will stop at nothing to save the Siamese and find justice for Annie--if the killer doesn’t sink his claws into her first.

Luckily, Lacy has the help of handsome NOLA PD homicide detective Jack Oliver to help her catch the cat-napper before its too late in Cat Got Your Cash, the endearing second Kitty Couture mystery from Julie Chase.

Review: First of all, this book's cover is adorable The kitty reminds me of a stray that I forced my sister to take in, Ifuplz.

I read the first Kitty Couture mystery and loved it, so I was more than ready to jump into this one. I wasn't disappointed at all.

A dead client, catnapped Siamese kitties that are set to inherit a fortune and a little bit of romance make this a fabulous read, and one you won't want to put down.

Then there's the love triangle going on, between Annie, Jack and Chase. Both guys are so lovable in their own ways that you will likely have a hard time deciding which guy you ultimately want Lacy to end up with.

Lacy has a wonderfully fun way of insinuating herself into the case. I love how she feels she has to help out because Annie was her idol.

Her relationship with her mother is getting a bit better, but there is still some strain, because Lacy wants to be independent and Lacy's mom is a society lady. Add the feud between the Llama Mama's and her Jazzy chicks and things there get a bit crazy too.

Most of the case involves Anne's two kittens that have a rather sizable trust fund. There are so many people that have ties to these animals and Annie. It keeps you guessing at who wanted her dead and why.

When all is finally revealed, I was really surprised.

This is a sweet cozy that you won't want to miss.  This is fast becoming one of my favorite series.
